Ember Moon def. Ruby Riot
The foundation for this battle was laid weeks ago when Ruby Riot took exception to Ember Moon’s remarks to reporters that she is already preparing for a title match against NXT Women’s Champion Asuka. With both Superstars intent on moving up the ladder in NXT’s crowded Women’s division, Riot and Moon tried to end things quickly, leading to a jaw-dropping flurry of pin attempts and reversals at the outset. NXT’s punk-rock pugilist made a strong showing, crushing Moon with a top-rope senton splash and a top-rope Frankensteiner.
Yet, Moon refused to be stopped. She stood up Riot with a discus elbow, felled her with a handspring forearm shiver, and broke out the Eclipse to secure the win and move one step closer to The Empress of Tomorrow.
